I have been working at Target full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – Target offers many development opportunities for it's team members, that being said, team members need to drive their own development which shows a desire and commitment to learning. Target also offers a work./life balance, great insurance benefits and their culture/values system is inclusive.
Cons – Executive leaders are often lacking business experience Target or other wise. They do not have management experience and that often leads to misunderstandings and hurt feelings for team members. Team Leaders are often training their new supervisors.
Advice to Senior Management – Incoming executives begin with at least 6 months of hands on Team Leader experience. Learn the Company from the trenches, explore and develop your management style before you are the final word at store level
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Target full-time for more than a year
Pros – Really nice managers, coworkers and HR staff. Super easy job. If youre a good worker than they'll work you a lot.
Cons – Pay is awful, even for managers with degrees its laughable. A lot of people you deal with (customers and coworkers alike) are very unintelligent. Hours aren't desirable (as with any retail job).
Advice to Senior Management – I would just suggest to bridge the gap a little more with pay of store managers and regular team members. So many of my coworkers had families to feed and couldn't because the pay was so awful. I also dont think it necessary to need a degree to move up into management.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Target part-time for less than a year
Pros – Usually lots of hours, free drinks sometimes, supportive coworkers, the ten percent discount with the discount and red card, professional atmosphere.
Cons – Non- consistent scheduling. As a cart attendant, the job you have to do is very physically demanding, and I don't believe we are very fairly compensated for the job. Also, upper management doesn't seem to recognize the hard work put in.
Advice to Senior Management – Pay cart attendants more, they're really an under-appreciated asset.

I worked at Target
Pros – nice managers, supervisor, co-workers, but they all gossip and stab each others in the back, can't open your mouth in this work place because the whole company will hear it
Cons – Always worked alone, I was a team member without a team, Always had too many people on slow days ..
Advice to Senior Management – give more hours to your employees, Target donates 5% to schools but they jack up the price in order to make an extra 5% to give to the schools
